Cité de la Musique


In case you haven't figured it out by now, 2009 has become my Canadian summer. First Kitchener, then Toronto, and now what many consider the most musical city in North America: Montreal. The famous Montreal Jazz Festival (pictured) doesn't start for another two weeks, but there's still plenty going on this weekend, including Suoni Per Il Popolo, the Montreal Fringe Festival, the Virgin Festival, and, on Sunday, the first annual Fete de la Musique Montreal (modeled after the famous Paris celebration.) Stay tuned for updates throughout the weekend.
